niversitatea Politehnica din Bucureti este o oper nemuritoare a generaiilor de profesori i discipoli care, prin eforturi susinute i cu mare dragoste de neam, i-au scris istoria. Este o istorie care continu s fie scris n fiecare zi i care reprezint parte din istoria Romniei i a intelectualitii romneti. storia modern a romnilor i a statului romn se leag de eforturile intelectualilor de adaptare i sincronizare cu civilizaia occidental. Valoarile autentice comune, tiina i tehnologia, aductoare de cunoatere i bunstare, i-au determinat pe intelectualii romni, iubitori de neam i ar, s conving autoritile timpului s aprobe nfiinarea unor instituii de nvmnt moderne, care s corespund unei nevoi de fond a societii acelor vremuri: nevoia de a construi. a se face c, ntre anii 1816-1917, un intelectual colit la Sibiu, Cluj i la coala de ingineri de la Viena, ntemeiat n 1797, Gheorghe Lazr, a struit pe lang boierii efori ai colii pentru crearea, la Bucureti, a unei coli superioare n limba romn. up ce s-au convins c este un tnr instruit, boierii i-au trimis domnitorului Ioan Gheorghe Caragea o anafor, prin care solicitau nfiinarea unei coli domneti, unde "un profesor s fie nsrcinat cu exercitarea ucenicilor la msurarea pmntului". a 24 martie 1818, prin opis domnesc, s-a aprobat anafora boierilor efori ai colii i "s-a poruncit evacuarea chiriailor i repararea odilor necesare colii", la Mnstirea Sfntul Sava. n august 1818, Gheorghe Lazr este "nvrednicit" s deschid cursurile de inginerie la coala de la Sfntul Sava. Gheorghe Lazr adreseaz o "ntiinare" ctre "de toat cinstea vrednic tinerime", cu urmtoarea chemare: "venii toi din toate prile i de toat starea". storia dezvoltrii economiei i societii romneti o putem citi n evoluia colii de la topografi i geodezi, la constructorii de drumuri, poduri i ci ferate, la inginerii pentru diferitele domenii industriale, care ncep s apar i s creasc n Principatele Romne i n Romnia. i astzi, ca i n trecut, trim momente n care trebuie s continum la alte cote i standarde, s ne sincronizm instituional i tehnologic cu lumea, ntr-o permanent i exploziv schimbare tehnologic, lume n care niciun domeniu nu mai poate fi conceput fr accesul la naltele tehnologii. coala fr profesorii i studenii ei nu ar fi evoluat la dimensiunile de astzi.

he University Politehnica of Bucharest is an everlasting masterpiece, signed by generations of professors and disciples, who wrote its history through consistent efforts, while driven by a great love for their country. Its history is being written everyday and it is part of the history of Romania and its intellectualism. he modern history of Romanians and of the Romanian nation has much to do with the efforts made by intellectuals in adapting to and aligning with the Western civilization. The mutual authentic values, the science and the technology, which are generators of knowledge, have determined the Romanian intellectuals, which were dedicated to their country and its people, to persuade authorities throughout time to found modern educational institutions that would respond to one primary need of the society back then: the need to build things. hat is why between 1816 and 1817 Gheorghe Lazr, an intellectual who had attended schools in Sibiu and Cluj as well as the Engineering School in Wien built in 1797, made efforts in persuading the boyars, who were also high educational advisers, to build in Bucharest a higher school with classes in Romanian. irst, they checked that the young man who came up with the proposition was indeed highly educated, then sent the ruler of that time a request through which they asked for a noble school to be found, where a teacher should be assigned with instructing apprentices on how to measure the land. n March the 24th 1818, a noble decree would approve the request of the boyars, summoning the tenants of the St. Sava Monastery to evict the building so that repairs should be made in preparation for the new school. n august 1818, Gheorghe Lazr is designated to start the engineering classes at St. Savas School. As a matter of fact, Gheorghe Lazr addresses an Announcement to all honorable young men inviting them as follows: do join wherever you come from, no matter your grounds. ne can read the history of the economic growth and of the Romanian society while studying the evolution of this school: starting with agronomic and geodesic engineers, continuing with builders of roads, bridges, and railways, and ending with engineers specialised in various industrial fields growing in the Romanian Principalities and in Romania in general.

ust like in the past, we are now living times in which we need to adapt and keep up with new standards and expectations, to align with institutions and technologies used around the world as we undergo a permanent and explosive technological change. In todays world, no field can progress without access to high technologies. ithout its professors and students, school could not have evolved the way it has.

ue to their professional accomplishments and the way they reflect the values of this school, the students of the University Politehnica of Bucharest have always been the best ambassadors of the Romanian school in general. he university professors are and always have been in the first line of intellectuals of every nation. Each generation of professors made consistent efforts in getting trained, acquiring competencies, getting accomplished, and becoming a role model for the younger generation. Each wave of teachers has had its series of true masters and mentors for the young. Most of ours professors spent their entire life in the lecture theatres. oth the present and the future of our university has its chance in the value of our professors and students they are reference points for ethics, honour, impartiality, dedication, honesty they embody inside the lecture theatres as well as outside them. They are engaged in their passion for work and aspiration to build excuisite scientific works and to create universal values. Such values have always laid at the foundations of Romania and they always will!

n Universitatea POLITEHNICA din Bucureti sunt pregtii oamenii fr de care societatea, aa cum o cunoatem astzi, nu ar putea funciona - inginerii.

he UNIVERSITY POLITEHNICA of Bucharest educates people without whom todays society, as we know it, could not exist - in one word, engineers.

Tot acum sunt fcute proiectele pentru porturile dunrene, pentru oprirea inundaiilor Dmboviei i pentru nfrumusearea capitalei. Lalanne a insistat pentru adoptarea sistemului metric. he Russo-Turkish Convention in 1849 established Barbu Dimitrie tirbei as ruler of ara Romneasc. He was very familiar with the shortage of teachers in the country, and so he brought French engineer Louis Chrtien Lalanne to improve the state of affairs. alannes school of engineers, i.e. The School for Bridges, Roads, and Mines, which had two classes The Class for Bridges and Roads and The Class for Mines, lasted for 5 years (starting with a preparatory year, then three years of common classes, and the final year of specialization courses) educated the engineers who tracked down the Ploieti-Predal road, slightly north of Comarnic, and the difficult bridges on this challenging intinerary. It was also during that time that the projects for building the Danubian ports, for protecting Dmbovia against the floods, and for the embellishment of Bucharest started. It was Lalanne who insisted on the adoption of the metrical system.

Students would often work in this lab and, at the same time, his brother, Anghel Saligny, would test various materials used in important construction works: Carol I Bridge, the Cernavod aqueducts over the Danube (1890-1895), or the docks in Constana Harbour. In 1920, this lab became the "Institute for Material Testing and Industrial Analysis."

Saligny (1854-1925) a fost un remarcabil inginer, premergtor mondial al tiinei construciilor metalice i de beton armat, realizator de multiple invenii i soluii unice n proiectarea i construirea podurilor i a construciilor industriale, pentru fundaia cheiurilor portuare i a docurilor, precum i a silozurilor de gru prin folosirea prefabricatelor de beton, toate n premier mondial. ucrarea sa cea mai important este proiectarea n 1888 i construcia ntre 1890-1895 a podului peste Dunre de la Cernavod, care era, la acea vreme, cel mai lung din Europa i printre cele mai importante poduri metalice cu deschidere mare din lume. Proiectul elaborat de Saligny aducea dou mari inovaii n construcia de poduri: sistemul nou de grinzi cu console pentru suprastructura podului i folosirea oelului moale ca material de construcie pentru tabliere de poduri. Soluiile inovatoare ale profesorului Anghel Saligny au stat i la baza impuntoarei construcii Turnul Eiffel. Cu nsuiri numeroase i alese, care rar se mbin n acelai om, a fost ales membru al Academiei Romne i Preedinte al acesteia.

nghel I. Saligny (1854-1925) was a remarkable engineer, a worldwide forerunner in the field of metallic and reinforced concrete constructions, an inventor of various unique solutions in the design and building of bridges and industrial constructions, the foundation of harbour docks as well as of wheat silages built from precast concrete at that time, all these were world premieres. is most important work was the Cernavod Bridge over the Danube, which he designed in 1888 and had built between 1890 and 1895. At that time, this was the longest bridge in Europe and one of the most important metallic bridges overlooking the sea. The project designed by Saligny brought two innovations in bridge building: the new system of beam consoles for the overbridge structure and the use of soft steel as construction material for bridge decks. Professor Anghel Salignys innovative solutions were also used in the foundations of the majestic Eiffel Tour. Blessed with numerous excellent human qualities that are rarely found in the same individual, Professor Saligny was appointed member and ultimately elected President of the Royal Academy.
